TED NELSON'S PUBLISHED PAPERS ON COMPUTERS AND INTERACTION, 1965 to 1977.   The pages are numbered in the order in which I was able to find the articles, when I hurriedly published them (by Xerox copier) in 1977. It was this book that persuaded John Walker, founder of Autodesk, to back the Xanadu® project in 1988. The illustrations in "New Media and Creative Facilities" (pp. 5-7), are of particular interest.  This large leaflet (on 11x17 paper) was printed around 1965, when I was...

The artist, Jean Parke Holm, was my grandmother. The model is her stepfather Edmund Gale Jewett, science teacher, poet and inventor. Two of his books are on the Internet Archive: his book of poetry, "Harvest of the Years, and his earlier science book with Wayne Smith, "Introduction to the Study of Science".

The New York Times requested this piece in 2011 for a special multi-author issue about the future.  They then cut it to a few paragraphs, gutted the style and the cynicism, and MADE AN INCORRECT CHANGE-- I said we were running out of Internet addresses (true); they changed it to running out of Web addresses (false). When I yelled, they changed it in the on-line version, but the print version had me stating an untruth. The Times' version is lousy.  My original is still surprisingly relevant.

About the author/family: Her married name was Jean Parke Holm long before this work was published. Her only child, Celeste Holm, was a star on Broadway and a popular supporting actress in Hollywood. Her grandson, Theodor Holm Nelson, came up with the idea of hypertext in 1960. Both Celeste Holm and Theodor Holm Nelson were raised by Jean Parke and Theodor Holm.

This paper expands on the classic article "As We Will Think" by Vannevar Bush (1945), which inspired Doug Engelbart as well as Ted Nelson.  What kind of hypertext did Bush foresee?  And what kind do we need? The Brunel version showed parallel pages (the "Parallel Textface"), but it is not shown here.  Another version at the Archive DOES have the parallel illustrations at the end-- https://archive.org/details/AsWeWillThink1972WithParallelPix The original was presented to...

This is a collection of photographs of the Holm family,  living in the parsonage (Prestegaard) at Haa, on the western  coast of Norway. They were taken in the 1890s by John Landstadt,  an early candid photographer,   who married one of the minister's daughters. Karenos Theodor Holm was the minister.  He and his wife Cecilie had eleven children. Theodor Holm, the youngest,  migrated to the United States  and became the father of actress Celeste Holm  and the grandfather who raised Ted...

Somehow I was selected as a major American bachelor and enumerated in this 1982 book.  Correspondence in those days was by paper mail, and I tried to make my piece humorous.  The author, Celeste Fremon, unfortunately misprinted, from what I sent her, the word "psychically" as "physically", which lowered matters considerably.  Still, she went along with the humor to the end.

(There is another, fiercer picture of Ted with the model  within this Internet Archive item.  These pictures may be re-used freely,  with attribution please.) Ted's plan in the 1970s for world electronic publishing  was to store content at "Xanadu stands",  which would deliver the content on request  through the network.  (There was no public network yet,  that was just ASSUMED.) The Xanadu stands would be franchised  like McDonald's stands, as a simple way  of financing...

This summarizes the Biostatus hypothesis,  a unifying theory of "morale"-- in its usual sense  of how effective you are and how good you feel,  which are deeply linked. The biostatus hypothesis is that our  effectiveness and exuberance constitute  a unified system, present at least in all mammals,  Biostatus is an internal counterpart to the status system--  an evolved system of evaluation and reward. There are probably no crucial experiments  to prove or disprove this...

The First Xanadu Proposal, 1966 This is historically interesting on a number of levels--  about hypertext, word processing, Xanadu,  and personal computing-- twenty years  before the personal computer. The paper was a proposal to Bill Jovanovich, my boss--  he and I had gone together to see Engelbart.  Engelbart was wonderful, and I was converted to the mouse,  but the other ideas here were my own.  And this may be the first description ever  of an easy-to-use word processor,  though...

This BBC documentary challenges the validity of calorie measurements of food-- adopted with no evidence in the 1930s, they say.  This helps validate the Atkins diet, the Banting diet, and the health study of Vilhjalmur Stefansson, who lived on fish and fatty seal meat for years and was proven totally healthy in 1938 (see Wikipedia).

(NOTE: Enclosed PDF tells the story in detail.) This radio play, produced in 1997,  is about Ted Nelson looking back from the year 2015,  and the immense impact that the Xanadu project  has had on the world.  (At least, according to the script.) However, this did not happen in 2015. The guy who plays Ted Nelson doesn't sound like Ted Nelson,  but the show sounds pretty interesting, even if you don't know Finnish.

This show celebrates the anniversary of the Web,  but concentrates on what came before.   There's a nice interview with Ted Nelson in the middle,  and the interviewer urges us to watch "Xanadu Basics 1a." Then the show ends with:  "This idea of fusing story-telling with computers  affirms the vision of Ted Nelson  at the very beginning of on-line networking."

Satirical piece for "Artificial Intelligence" issue of  Creative Computing magazine. It is a flowchart that writes articles on how great  artificial intelligence is going to be. The publisher, Dave Ahl, was not amused;  turned out he wanted the issue to be how  WONDERFUL artificial intelligence was going to be. The piece did not run, even though I was the editor.  Dave Ahl did not like it.

This book was the handout for Ted's seminar,  "Cinema of the Mind," in 1994  (handed out at U.B.C.) There has been no time or opportunity  to rewrite it since then,  though parts of it have been in  all of Ted's lectures. Ted's term, "virtuality"--   in its original sense, SEEMING--  is the central concept of the book. The breadth is challenging--  the design of structure,  the philosophy of ideas,  the strong resemblance to cinema,  and the need for a director.
Topics: software design, interaction, virtuality, UX
